ISSP Starptautiskās meistarklases dalībnieki - 22 fotogrāfi no 15 pasaules valstīm - gada garumā veidoja personīgos projektus pasaulē atzītu ekspertu vadībā, pētot sev interesējošās parādības vai tēmas un tiekoties meistarklases sesijās Kuldīgā un Sicīlijā. Vācu fotogrāfa Pītera Bjalobžeska vadītajā darbnīcā "Pārmaiņu izjūta" tapa projekti par personiskām, sociālām un politiskām pārmaiņām mūsdienu pasaulē. Britu mākslinieces Klēras Strendas un kuratora, mākslinieka un redaktora Gordona Makdonalda eksperimentālajā darbnīcā “Atbildes uz jautājumiem un jautājumi par atbildēm" tika veidoti darbi, kas rotaļīgā veidā – caur jautājumiem, eksperimentiem un diskusijām – pārtulkoja idejas vizuālā valodā. Noslēdzoties pēdējai meistarklases darbnīcai Kuldīgā, dalībnieki pirmo reizi prezentē gada laikā radītās fotogrāfiju sērijas, video darbus, grāmatas, māla skulptūras un citus objektus.

The participants of the ISSP International Masterclass - 22 artists and photographers from 15 countries - spent a year working on their personal projects under the guidance of experienced mentors. The work was created under two thematic lines - "A Sense of Change", exploring how changes in the physical, political or psychological landscape can be represented in contemporary photographic practice, and "Answering Questions and Questioning Answers", an experimental class centered on ideas and translating them into visual language. During the year, three mentorship meetings were held in Kuldīga and Favara (Sicily). To conclude the final session in Kuldīga, the photographic series, video works, book dummies, clay objects and other items created during the year are being presented for the first time.
